Hot and Dry, Mostly Sunny

It’s a quarter after 2 in the afternoon and it’s only up to 95 deg. headed for 98 deg. in Dallas.  Back in the crib for the duration, it seems. 

The petunias have definitely seen their last, and the geraniums are not far behind.  The ferns gave up the ghost a couple of weeks ago.  I guess I’ll make a quick run to the nursery tomorrow morning early (before it gets out of the 80s) and get some new baskets of “seasonal color”.  Gotta keep up appearances for potential buyers!  You never know what will appeal to them.  The roses inside are doing great, though.

I got up and went to 9:30 church.  Big Al was struck with a severe case of “morticus sabatacus” (that’s that vile disease that strikes about 6:00 a.m. on Sunday, and keeps you from going to church.  Then it miraculously disappears about 11:30 a.m. so you can go out to dinner with the family.)

Glad he got a chance to go to lunch with me, though.  We went to Tokyo One – a sushi buffet – that has lots of all-you-can-eat sushi as well as soups, salads, grilled chicken teriyaki, beef teriyaki, steamed clams, vegatable stir-fries, made-to-order hibachi grills and stir-fries, tempura shrimp, chicken, and vegatables, crab legs, and sabu-sabu pots, and lots of desserts like fresh fruit, gelatins, tortes, flan, and creme brulee.

I’ll definitely miss Tokyo One when we move to Tacoma, but I’ll bet they have really good sushi of their own.

We polished off another 5 episodes (4 hours) of West Wing last night.  I’ve got to run the first disc to the post office, so we can get disc #4 before we’ve forgotten where we are.  I can almost repeat the dialogue with the actors, I’ve seen it so often, but I still love watching it.  And it’s better than any of the drek that’s on broadcast right now.

Maybe as soon as I get back from the post office, I’ll go put my feet up and read (and probably examine the insides of my eyelids for a while, too).
